Someone is winning a Vel Satis and Pies

Recommended Posts

Right time to put this up for a roffle 

 

53 plate Vel satis. 

It is effectively a 5 seater espace. 

2.0 Turbo engine 

6 speed gearbox - manual 

250,300 miles on clock and rising. 

MOT is mid November I think 

 

Comes with electric everything including handbrake (which works well). Huge stack of history including owners manual. 

 

So heated electric  seats, Cruise, Speed limiter, 6 disc CD changer, electric  windows all round (see below).

 

Sexiest clock this side of Xtriples barge. 

 

If you were a mouse then it is the best place to have a game of hide and seek as has many many cubby holes to hide in. 

 

Star of Hubnut TV and the beardy bloke gave it a 2.5 stars out of 5 review -

Challenging bits 

 

  • Passenger side window goes down in stages. This is just the cable that needs replacing. Happy to help someone change it as not that hard 
  • Rear Drivers window doesnt work - Dont know why 
  • No ac - tried a regas and got told that it probably had a leak 
  • Slightly misfire although ignored it 
  • Front brakes sometimes make a bit of a noise. Weather that would have Noah reaching for his waterproofs has meant I havent looked at this. 
  • Plastics are a bit sticky (not down to Dogging ... I think .. .maybe previous owners can confirm) 
  • Flashes up warning for low washer fluid (It is a liar ... the washer are wetter than an otters pocket) 

 

I literally have just been driving this since March putting fuel in and some oil once in a while. A totally rare beast that will have Renault lickers stopping you at petrol stations (they are mostly friendly) 

 

Located in Accrington but probably can do a delivery for train tickets home if you live in civilization (yes that might include Chester)

I borrowed this for the last couple of weeks and it did me sterling service for a thousand miles. It was a relaxing, comfy, wafting removal van and I flipping loved it. I got 38.6mpg on a long motorway run but round town stuff was less economical obvs. It never went below 30mpg though. I do drive like a pensioner on valium but that's what this car enjoys and encourages, change up early and appreciate the serenity. I can't say that I noticed a misfire and if anything I would say that this is better than described.

None of the above is to be taken as a guarantee if it explodes into a flaming ball of kittens or summat the moment the winner collects it.

I found it only misfired when I jumped on the loud pedal. I also thought it was cured when I put new ignition coils on, but i did put cheapo ones on, so it might warrant a new set.

The sticky vinyl was nuffink to do wiv me, guv, honest. I did disinfect it all, though, to be on the safe side, along with hitting it with a variety of chemicals, none if which had more than a temporary effect on said stickiness...

The next few days will see me struggling to not buy tickets. I miss its wellness spa environment.

Oh, a new 'clutch pedal up' sensor will sort the non-functioning cruise - if you wedge yer foot under said pedal, cruise can be engaged. Doing this sort of defeats the point though really...

I think this has been to my house, but I missed it!

For that reason I'll have a couple of randoms please.

 

It's a pity it doesn't have SatNav, not for navigation purposes , but because Renault satnavs of this era could be made to sing along with Snow Patrol's Run. Just increase the volume as they're singing 'louder, louder' and it harmonises perfectly.

 

The actual only good thing about the mk4 Espace I stupidly bought 10 years ago.

Cruise does work, I stick it on all the time.

 

Driver's window is back happily working up and down, with one touch each way.

 

Will update tickets when I get to a big pc in an hour or so.

 

 

As a bonus free gift, the car will come with two northern pies of your choice and four random homebrews (soft drinks available)

I think that is all numbers up to date. 

 

 

I've 'thanked' you for that OP, purely because DW in a captain's hat.

 

Just to clarify, the hat doesnt come with the car..... so how many tickets do you want?

Its selling well ... think you could have it back for just £6. and it comes with pies. I spoke to the car last night and apparently you were its favourite owner ... 

 

28 & 45 if you would please.

 

Just as long as it comes with the vaseline :)

 

Buy your own vaseline - cheek of it :-) 

 

Are payment options other than Paypal available?  If so I will have a random please.

 

Any money is good money. Many many options available 

 

I'll take the winning ticket and one non-winning ticket please.

 

Number 1 is definitely going to win so allocated accordingly 

 

That's extraordinary - has it had a replacement speedo?

 

Was used as a taxi I think. There are marks on dashboard where the taxi gubbins went.  It is huuuuuge so I can see doing airport runs is a doddle

      I’m not sure if there’d be much interest in a roffle for a topless mills o’matic swede at this time of year but before I stick it down at the barn for winter, I thought I’d mention it on here...
      Its a 2006 9-3 1.8t with just under 90k miles and a good service history. It has been Mrs NMs summer chariot of choice but has now been stood down by a Berlingo diesel...the backup plan is to park it up over winter before prepping it up for sale in the spring where it would get advertised for its market value but due to the impending arrival of another toy, if someone on here wants to win it for the frankly ludicrous sum of £12.00, then step right up!!
      Good bits...
      All electrics, roof etc in good order, decent tires all round, plenty of MOT, working air con, polishes up nicely, will come with new discs and pads on the front.
      Not so good bits...
      Silly tax bracket so £48 a month to tax, occasional lambda fault which pops on EML....will reset and stay off for a month or two, slight bit of pogweasleing on the n/s front bumper where it’s had a smart repair in the past.
      Only got a few pictures to hand at the minute but if there’s any interest, I’ll stick some more up in the next day or so.
      Roffle tickets as it is are £12 each or two for £20 and the car is located near Burnley, Lancashire.
      Form an orderly queue.... 🙂

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....

      Going to roffle for a fiver a ticket, two for £8, 3 for £11
      In good working order apart from the head gasket. 
      Put the ventilated header tank cap on, take it easy and bring spare water and you will be able to drive it home. 
       
      It doesn't overheat, just pressure in the cooling system. Cylinder compression is good.

      This has been dragging with the end tantalisingly in sight, so inspired by the worthy @SRi05 I'll pop it in here and see if anyone who doesn't visit 'Shite For Sale' is interested...
       
      Quoting now...
       
      After having recently gone through the fun* of selling a car on eBay, I thought I'd try my luck on here. I only bought this a couple of weeks ago on a whim, thinking it would be ideal for shooting down to France with the wife and the dog to visit the in-laws, but the wife has taken against it HARD due to the lack of air-con (she's not worried about us - it's the dog!). So it has to go.
      Bad bits first, as is AS tradition. The A/C really is gone. No amount of re-gassing will fix this! A few patches of rust here and there - none look bad enough for welding. A bit of rust converter and bondo and job jobbed was my plan. Laquer is starting to peel in a few places. The remote central locking doesn't always unlock the passenger side door (although it does always seem to lock it, which is odd). Tailgate has a decent dent in it. Nothing to do with me, it came free with the car. Tailgate still works fine, though.
      Good bits. Maybe it has been too long since I was last in a rear-wheel drive, but it feels to me like it pulls away from the line very nicely. The six-speed box feels nice and precise, and lets you trundle along at 70mph with the engine only doing about two and a half thousand revs (not had it long enough to really measure fuel efficiency). MOT until Feb and taxed to get you home.
      Located in Ipswich. I was thinking £9 per ticket, or two for £16, three for £21. Any takers?
       
      PRICE DROP !!!!
      £8 for one, £14 for two, £19 for three. Buy Buy Buy!!!!
